It's Official: Range Rover Evoque Convertible Coming in 2016 [VIDEO]
It's very exciting news today, since Land Rover has confirmed that it is going to introduce to the market a Range Rover Evoque Convertible. In fact, the vehicle has already been put under some serious testing at Crossrail, which is Europe's largest construction project comprised of 26 miles of tunnels. In addition, the tests have been filmed and the result is a stunning film, which can be viewed below.
After we have seen the 2016 Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show, the company could not hide a little more from us that a cabrio version of the model is coming in 2016, too. And this is when both will go on sale. As you can see the open-top SUV has the new design cues that were incorporated in the new model year Evoque.
There are no details regarding any specification, but there probably won't be any surprises. We expect the same gasoline engine, which produces 240 horsepower (176 kW) and accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 62mph (0-100km/h) in 7.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 135mph (217km/h).
Bringing some attention to the video, it happens forty meters below the streets of London. This is where the first prototype was tested on the 26-mile network of Crossrail tunnels. The short film begins with the introduction of the convertible into the tunnel via a crane. Then it proceeds to the real testing where it meets a lot of various obstacles. And this is where the things get a little bit hotter. Check out and see for yourself.
Later this year, the company will release other details about the strongly demanded Evoque Convertible. What we are left until then is this beautiful video and the hope to get soon any news.
